35. I have an assault weapon hanging in the mantle of my fireplace.
For it's time, it was a state-of-the-art military rifle issued by the government of this country to the Regular Army and state militias.

Just because it is an 1863 Colts Rifled Musket manufactured in Springfield does not make it less of an 'assault weapon' than any other type of rifle now manufactured.

Probably even more so as it was actually issued and used in the Civil War.
